Imagine diving into a breakfast that feels like a treat yet is bursting with health benefits. Our Cookie Dough Overnight Oats are just that! They're a perfect blend of creamy, crunchy, and sweet, with every spoonful reminding you of indulgent cookie dough. Here’s why this recipe will become your go-to morning meal:


  • High in Protein: Thanks to the addition of your favorite protein powder, these oats are a great post-workout meal or a filling breakfast to keep you satisfied until lunch.

  • Rich in Healthy Fats and Fiber: The chia seeds and almond or natural peanut butter not only add a creamy texture but also provide the essential fats and fiber your body needs.

  • Versatile: Easily customize it with different types of milk, protein powders, or toppings according to your dietary needs and preferences.


Ingredients

  • 2 cups rolled oats

  • 2 tbsp chia seeds

  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips

  • 1 scoop of your favorite protein powder (we love Shaklee French Vanilla Plant)

  • A pinch of fine kosher salt

  • 2 tbsp almond or natural peanut butter

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

  • 2 1/2 cups milk of your choice


Let’s Make It!

  1. Combine Dry Ingredients: In a mason jar, mix together the rolled oats, chia seeds, mini chocolate chips, protein powder, and a pinch of salt.

  2. Add the Wet Ingredients: To the same jar, add the almond or peanut butter, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and milk.

  3. Mix Well: Stir everything together until well combined and there are no clumps.

  4. Chill: Cover the jar with a lid and place it in the refrigerator. Let it chill for at least two hours, but preferably overnight, to allow the oats to soften and the flavors to meld together beautifully.

  5. Enjoy: The next morning, give it a good stir, and enjoy your cookie dough overnight oats straight from the jar or pour it into a bowl. Feel free to add more toppings like fresh fruits, nuts, or a dollop of yogurt for extra flavor and texture.
